Here’s another sneak peek for the final chappy of Home, which I’m aiming to post in June (60 drawings + Lupus = Julie needs extra time) but now it’s 42 paintings down, 18 to go!! Thanks for your unending patience ♥
Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel? Will I dance for You, Jesus? Or in awe of You, be still? Will I stand in Your presence? Or to my knees, will I fall? Will I sing ‘Hallelujah!’, will I be able to speak at all?
Guess who finally got to particapte in their first Tyranitar raid after waiting around so we could get 9 people to make sure we could defeat it? Guess who also wants to die right now? If you guessed me, you are correct. Reblog if you cried as well.
I worry that the loudest voices in the church about LGBTQA+ experiences are white gay men.
I also dislike the phrase “s*me-g*nder attraction” instead of LGBTQA+ because it excludes me and people like me from the discussion completely. When I go looking for LGBTQA+ resources in the church, that’s all I find, and asexuality and aromanticism might as well not even exist to anyone but me. It’s a rly sad, hard feeling. I don’t experience s*me g*nder attraction, but I also don’t experience opposite gender attraction. I’m not straight. I belong in the LGBTQA+ community. I have questions. I want resources and representation and I want to have something to show my parents when I explain who I am.
You think when Kuro showed up everyone pulled an Allura and kept their distance?
Even Shiro, who knew that they could at least kinda maybe trust the clone.
But before any sort of bonding- pr adopting Kuro into the family, they just shunned him.
Maybe he reacted equally, kept his distance and raised his guard around these people. Never look the princess in the eye, don’t look at the holt kid…to many questions in those eyes…even Coran who tolerates him the most won’t actively seek him out for anything, not even to clean…
And then there’s Lance.
Lance who upon hearing the news that they were “rescuing the clone and saving him form torture and other horrible shit” - whose first thought was “Ok. thats someone to protect.”
Lance who kept that going, who was the only one who would wait for Kuro in the healing pod after everyone slipped off. Who greeted a confused and obviously distressed man upon exiting said pod. (Did he tell anyone that the first words spoken were said through a hand on his throat pressed against the pods side? Never. It’s ok! You’re okay…I’m here to help…)
Lance grew up with adopted siblings. He knew the things to look out for. Sure he was used to younger kids, but the signs were the same. Despondence, hyper aware caution. Inability to fit into the family…
Making it his personal goal to befriend the dark version of his friend, no matter what stigma it carried. Refusing to address by anything other than Kuro Not like Keith, who wouldn’t even speak. Pidge, the clone.Allura…it….
Lance who endeared himself slowly to Kuro. Who was the first to hear a genuine reaction other than anger and fear. First time he got Kuro to laugh and it was a shitty pun and he was ELATED.
Lance who very slowly worked Kuro into the group as a whole. Who helped him fit in.
Who unbeknownst to himself, was someone Kuro was willing to fight for. Someone he was willing to live for.
And someone who he was driven to prove himself to.
